Santa Fe University of Art and Design Reviews

Almost everything about this school is amazing! The quality of the professors and courses are excellent. The professors especially are usually published artists in the fields they teach and have more knowledgeable teaching styles, they also greatly encourage class interaction, are often available by email or have scheduled office hours, and are often just as artistically "unique" as the students they teach, which allows them to better relate to and communicate with their students. The class sizes, despite their popularity are usually small to average size, which most students greatly enjoy. And the school definitely offers a wide variety of classes. The school's quality is excellent.
Review Santa Fe University of Art and Design
This school works with the local community to help it's students succeed in getting a job in their field. The school often works with movie producers and film crews and actually have a policy that the crew has to use student interns for their film! The rest of the fields offer similar programs to their students, trying to help them get a hands-on, immersive experience in their career field before graduating; many actually end up taking part in a published work in their field before graduating!
I was so excited to go here. My first year (and last year) was bad. The dorm rooms were disgusting and not well handled. There were a lot of plumbing issues that were never taken care of. The administration faculty was horrible. There was a lack of communication with students about anything. luckily, the school is shutting down after next year (2017-2018) due to the company that funded us, receiving no profit from it anymore.
